2009 Dodge Viper SRT10: Viperoadtrip Guess the Car? Game

July 16, 2010

On the return trip in the 2009 Dodge Viper, we took some good roads off of I-70. I'll tell you more about that, but first, check out this beaut we found disintegrating at a Shell station in Hanksville, UT.

Know what make and model it is? The sexay beast on the right, I mean.

[Update: bobinsepa nailed this one -- it's a 1958 Borgward Goliath 1100 Kombi. It has a water-cooled 1100cc flat four hung over the front axle, like a Subaru. There's a transverse front leaf spring and what looks like a rear beam axle. Very packaging-efficient -- there's oodles of space under the hood and the cabin is quite roomy. The owner claims that with a new fuel pump and a battery that it runs just fine.]

Here'sa hint -- it's German, has a flat four, and is not the obvious choice.

I'll check back in the comments, and later, update the post with more info and pics. This thing is so freaking cool I can barely contain myself.
